Methodology

Methods: 

All woody vegetation greater than 0.1 m and <1m tall are tagged and surveyed approximately every 6 months (4 months in the first year). Once plants reach 1m they are counted in the large plot data. Diameters are at soil level. Intensive landslides are ES-1, Es2 (monitored 2 times a year). Extensive landslides (N=13) are monitored once a year.
